Badluck Way reviewed in New York Times

March 12, 2014

From the New York Times Sunday Book Review:

After a bout of 20-something wanderlust, Andrews moves from Seattle to southwestern Montana to be a worker on a ranch “committed to conservation and improving the health of the land for wildlife and livestock.” His co-workers there teach him how to worm a horse and ride through the cattle to “settle” them, and never to use the word “cowboy,” except as a verb. Life at the ranch is not without politics.... But the beauty of this book is how such a personal story reflects larger issues about the American West — not just the politics of wildlife and real estate, but the strange, conflicting impulses engendered by such landscapes, illustrated by the day when Andrews pushes rocks off a mountaintop out of sheer joy, sending boulders crashing down into the forest, “shaping the wilderness, if only by punching holes.”

 

Badluck Way by Bryce Andrews (Atria/S&S, 2014) is currently #12 on the PNBA Indie Bookseller List!
